From CHRIS CARTER & COSEY FANNI TUTTI's remastered limited edition vinyl series 2023! "an album which shows that Carter Tutti are in a state of continuing evolution" - The Wire.

2007's Feral Vapours of the Silver Ether will be available here for the first time on vinyl and was the second release under the Carter Tutti name.

On it, the electronic and the acoustic are merged in a seamless, crafted album that is awash with echoes of the sea, the moon, the open road, and flatlands.

The album was the 2nd by Chris & Cosey as Carter Tutti after 2004's `Cabal'. The project was their concerted effort to explore more sensual, even psychedelic, forms after more than 25 years of defining synth-pop and techno-pop in their own image since departing from pioneering industrial band Throbbing Gristle.

Anyone expecting Chris Carter's puckered, ductile rhythms may be left wanting by this album, but anyone who loves his sleek, layered synth contours, or the intoxicating presence of Cosey's voice and brass are strongly encouraged to revel in its sexy sensuousness, and especially so if they haven't already.

A good starting point is stand-out `Acid Tongue', with Cosey's folksy lilt splitting difference between Angela Conway and Teresa Winter, and perfectly suspended in the ether of her husband, Chris' slow, spangled synths.

Or you might as well start at the front with `So Slow the Knife', which lays out ideas nodding to Martin Denny's exotica or Hassell's 4th world motifs in Cosey's cornet and Chris's lolling pulses, while `Black Dust' and the foreboding, NWW-esque `Feral Vapours' closer will find favour with dark ambient souls.
